Major hack work. Enjoy the pics!!

Ok boys and girls, This is what happens when a company overlooks a proper bid and takes the hacks bid instead. I bid this 2X, Once in March & once in April for a regional out of Florida who pays me well. (i was Alti direct for 3 years but they dropped me when i wouldn't cover the entire state) Alti gave it to a regional out of California who hired a hack.

Starting out, their is debris around the perimeter of the entire property. A lot of it was drug away from the house to the fenceline. Probably around 30 Cu Yds.

Then a detached storage shed is chuck full. Nothing has been removed.

Boarding is screwed on with gaps all over. Upstairs boarding is screwed to the INSIDE wall.

Exposed broken glass in bedroom.

No handrails anywhere.

CO detectors at near eye level instead of near the floor as required by code.

New smokes on walls 18" from ceiling, Code requires 12" max.

FILTHY! Barely passes for a broom swept! You can see the mud streaks where they "mopped" the floor.

Alti push button lock installed, Handle screwed into a steel door that is in good shape. All other exterior locks epoxied shut including the detached garage door but the inside lock mechanism is still operable LOL.

Landscaping knocked down with a weed eater. Nothing picked up.

Enjoy.............

Upon reviewing your photos these items should have been remedied upon your arrival. You are now being back charged with a 20% upcharge to cover finding a new scum tard vendor to fix the errors. The hack work never ends I tell you what.

How do they get away with it? They probably don't. They get hit with invoice cuts and backcharges and continue for another month doing the same until they figure out they aren't going to make it. That is what a hack does.

A photograph is a universal language.
This isn't a biased post, steeped in negativity for personal vendetta.
This is a Safeguard property, and yes, both ends of the railing are nailed to the wall and into the side of the steps.
Pretty hard to make this look or sound any worse than it already is.

Honestly, I'd almost consider that a trip hazard.

I just can't get past the CO detectors mounted at 5' off the floor. Homeowner sleeping in a bed 2 feet off the ground will be dead before the CO goes off! Same with smokes 18" off the ceiling. That extra 6" could mean the difference of life or death. Just stupid crazy chit and these companies have QC departments?????????????:icon_rolle yes:
